9.Summary of Research Results

Interdisciplinary studies have been conducted by using dry super-conducting magnet. The maximum magnetic field was 10T. In the period of the project, we focused to (a) non-equilibrium system, (b) particle or bubble whose size locate in between 10-9-10-6m, and (c) some specific systems sensitive to the magnetic field. As for category (a), (1) specific spatiotemporal pattern formation was discovered in the iron corrosion under high magnetic field, (2) new magnetic field effect to the ensembles of non-linear electrochemical oscillators, which is expected to be the simple model for the nerve systems in a living system, (3) behaviors of typical non-linear chemical reactions such as B-Z reaction was investigated under high magnetic field. These studies realized that the small perturbation by the magnetic field can be empathized in those non-linear systems. In the category (b), (4) we formed a newly designed colloidal crystal that can vary its structural color by the magnetic field, and (5) improved the spatial order in a two dimensional film by mono-particle layer. In category (c), (6) we studied a giant magnetic resistance formed by a nano-structured electronic ceramics, and (7) magnetic field induced change in optical properties of ultra pure water. Thus, we have succeeded to grow the research embryo to the fruitful basic science, which has a potential to expand itself into industrial applications.
